Template web site - comments invited

I'm creating a WWB template that I can use for 4-5 web sites that I maintain. But before I dive in and actually update the existing files, I'd appreciate any feedback on what I have got so far.

You can find it at

A few points to note:
there are some blank pages (apart from the header) which is where site specific stuff will go
The "Events" page is a placeholder for trying things out.
I have set the following breakpoints
  • 1280 - for normal desktops
    980 - fits the iPad/tablets in landscape mode
    800 - fits the 10.5" tablets in portrait mode (and some smaller tablets in landscape)
    700 - fits most tablets in portrait mode and some phones in landscape mode
    320 - the default for most phones in portrait mode
So, comments/feedback welcomed.

Hi mate

In no particular order and all meant in a positive constructive way :)

  • The "be a scout" and "leaders and parents" text is bordering on unreadable and it looks like they're graphics that are skewed out of their original ratio. You can likely achieve a better result using web-safe fonts using Using @font-face

    The graphics sliding up over the logos and text below them on the homepage it distracting and IMHO doesn't look great

    On several of the pages the text feels cramped together and small. show a little love to the fonts you use, their style colour and size etc.

    Using header tags will help with your SEO, there's some good help pages within WYSIWYG documentation

    There was a link to which in contract looks much more polished and tidy.

    On some of the pages with more text on them and the text goes to the bottom of the page, it kinda feels that there's more text hidden below the surface because the existing text go right to the bottom of the page/screen. It might be an idea to use a footer, this can also include some useful info/links to give it a more practical use.

ANYway, that's all from me (you'll be glad to hear) there's a lot of work gone into it, I think it just needs a little more care and thought how it delivers all the great content to the visitor.

Hope it helps
